Who Doesn't Love Chocolate?!

Today's post is about chocolate! I don't think I know anyone that doesn't like chocolate. If you don't, well....maybe I will keep my comments to myself, haha! I love the taste of chocolate and how it makes me feel. Mmm Mmm mmmm. I am particularly a lover of milk chocolate and I would say my favourite chocolate bar is Ritter Sport Alpine Milk Chocolate. I do take milk chocolate in moderation because I know what it can do to my hips, haha. Unfortunately, I am not a big fan of dark chocolate and I know it does have health benefits :)

Considering I am a lover of chocolate and food, I have the privilege of being one of the volunteer Event Managers for the Festival of Chocolate  (yes, I am doing a bit of promotion here, why not?). The Festival features over 100 individual events over a 3 week period – October 15- November 10, 2011. Examples of events include Wine and Chocolate Tastings, Tea and Chocolate Events, and Children’s Halloween Chocolate Pumpkin Making Events. The great thing about the Festival, aside from the promotion of chocolate, is that it is a non-profit organization that provides mentored work experiences for youth. Even though I am a seasoned event professional, I wanted to be a part of the Festival because I want to support a good cause and further build my event experience and skills.

If you are chocolate lover, I would encourage you to check out the Festival, it is going to be awesome! You can get more information by going to: http://festivalofchocolate.ca.  You can also like the Festival on Facebook and follow them on Twitter. And lastly, if you are interested in volunteering for the Festival go here:

I know the above was a shameless plug but I just felt that it was my duty as an Event Manager of the Festival :)

I don't know about you, but all this writing about chocolate is making me crave, well, CHOCOLATE! I think I am going to go find some right now...

Mmmm chocolate. Would you believe that once upon a time, in my teens, I didn't like chocolate. Now I love it, but am glad to report, I'm good at enjoying is reponsibly. :-) Will have to try to get to the festival. Will you remind your tweeps about it closer to?
